In the last decade, Michigan State’s athletic department has arguably been as successful as any in the country. Dating back to 2007, many of MSU’s programs have reached the postseason, and three of the big-name programs boast at least one Final Four (men’s basketball, football and hockey). The 2007 hockey team and the 2014 women’s cross country teams brought national titles back to East Lansing.

In Major League Baseball, teams can draft players right out of high school. If the player decides he’s better off going to college, he isn’t eligible to be drafted again until after his junior year. For example, Jesse Heikkinen was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the recent MLB Draft, but he announced that he’ll be sticking with his commitment to Michigan State, where he’ll play for at least three years, barring a transfer or something else unforeseen. As the debate continues on what’s best for the NBA and college basketball, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo weighed in on the issue with CBS Sports.

Michigan State’s 2016 recruiting class was the highest-ranked group in Mark Dantonio’s decade as coach. It was supposed to reflect the Spartans’ ascent to the national stage and infuse the program with the talent necessary to extend its presence as a Big Ten power. Now, less than a year after that group arrived in East Lansing, the Spartans are picking up the pieces following their worst season in more than two decades.

After a lot of charts, graphs and consideration, when it came right down to it, I really wanted to win. And not many coaches and teams in the country are better at winning games than Tom Izzo and Michigan State. Coach and his staff came to see me last September, right after he’d gotten inducted into the Hall of Fame. Sure, that made an impression but that’s not a reason for a college decision. Truth is, my game matches up with his hard-nosed style. And he’s a winner. I didn’t want to go someplace where I might score 20 points a game and be on a losing team. It just felt like a good fit.

The lasting image from the end of Damion Terry’s 2016 season is of him sitting on a training table at Penn State’s Beaver Stadium with a towel draped over his head. The Spartans quarterback had just made his first start in Michigan State’s finale against Penn State, in his home state no less.But after a promising start to the game, with points on his first two drives, Terry took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the second quarter. His night was done, and guessing the emotions going on under that towel wasn’t tough to do.

Michigan State’s incoming freshman class arrived Sunday, but the workouts didn’t commence until two days later. The Spartans had plenty of other business to take care of first. Physicals had to be completed. Film had to be broken down. And in the wake of four player dismissals related to sexual-assault charges this offseason, the importance of off-field conduct had to be stressed to the new players.
